Pressing On!

Philippians 3:12, NIV
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me”

Yesterday we asked the Lord to shine His lamp on the inner recesses of our heart – especially to check the motives of our heart. Today we are looking out on a New Year with all that the year may have in store for each and every one of us.

Ultimately, there is only one New Year’s resolution for believers! And that is profoundly expressed in our Scripture for today – to press on to take hold of everything that God has planned and purposed for our lives. And the other side of such a goal is to lay aside everything that gets in the way of achieving God’s best for our lives.

The big question is, of course, how do we know what it is that we should take hold of? The answer is found in the Scripture which God has used to deeply impact my own life – Psalm 25:14. Here God tells us that He confides in those who fear Him. What a privilege believers have – to be able to hear His voice directing our lives and leading us into the plans and purposes that He has for us.

Learning to live in the love and the fear of the Lord is a wonderful key to turn – it’s a key which will unlock even the most difficult situation in your life. With God showing us the way to go we can then press on with confidence to take hold of that which He has prepared for us in advance. I pray that this will be a very special year, as you step out into all that God has set before you in 2013.

Prayer: Thank You, Lord, that you have plans for my life. Help me, I pray, to walk in your ways in 2013 and to press on to take hold of that for which you took hold of me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Comments Off on The Lamp of God

The Lamp of God

Proverbs 20:27, NIV
“The lamp of the Lord searches the spirit of a man, it searches out his innermost being”

I have always enjoyed the opportunity which the end of a year brings – the opportunity to review the past, assess the present and make plans for the future. John Wesley always led his followers, the early Methodists, to use this season of the year to renew their covenant with the living God.

The secular world knows nothing of covenant, but many people are fond of making New Year Resolutions – even though most of them will probably be broken by the end of the first week of the new year! A resolution, without understanding of the reasons why the resolution has become necessary, will invariably end up on the scrap heap of impossible dreams and unfulfilled ambitions!

So, what, as believers, can we do at this time of the year to redeem the season? One answer to that question lies in our Scripture for today. Our innermost being is the source of the decisions we make and the things we do – both good and bad. It is here that the motives of the heart have their origin and another proverb (Proverbs 16:2) tells us that it is the motives of the heart that are weighed by the Lord.

It is so easy for us to deceive ourselves and for our ways to seem innocent to us (also in Proverbs 16:2), even though they may be far from innocent! As a result we become blinded, even to what those innermost motives are! We need help – and help is at hand. For this Scripture tells us that the lamp of the Lord will search out our innermost being. So our prayer for this last day of the year is simply to ask the Lord to shine His lamp into the recesses of our heart and to show us what He sees! We will then have some great material to address with the Lord as we renew our covenant with Him as children of the King, who have chosen to follow Him in the work of the Kingdom of God.

Prayer: Thank You, Lord, that You are able to see into the inner recesses of my heart. Please shine your lamp and help me to see those things that are displeasing to You, so that, with Your help, I can make lasting and fruitful changes in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
